I am working hard to make sure none of our Thanksgiving leftovers go to waste; however, Thanksgiving is such a food heavy holiday, it is difficult to motivate myself to eat the same meal for the week following. As a result, I decided on this quick, easy, and light dinner to put a dent in those leftovers.
What you’ll need:
Leftover turkey bits
Caesar dressing, premade or homemade
Tomatoes, cut into bite sized chunks
Lettuce, chopped into large chunks for salad
Freshly ground pepper
Freshly grated Parmesan
Leftover bread or rolls
While the croutons bake, mix your tomatoes, lettuce, and turkey bits. Add a dollop of Caesar dressing and mix to coat. Once the croutons finish baking, add to the salad mix and mix to coat with the dressing. Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan and freshly ground pepper.
Results: This is another quick and easy recipe to use after a long day of cooking. I had leftover Caesar dressing in the refrigerator which made this even easier for me. I actually made this the day after Thanksgiving, it was the perfect light meal to follow such a heavy day of eating.
How are you working your way through all of those leftovers?
